Is Sony's Vaio range worth buying?

I’m in the market for a new laptop, I’ve been recommended Vaio VGN-CR 33.

Any users out there, computer bods?

Pros and Cons etc..Cheers everyone!

I’ll also be checking out officiall reviews but you never know just who writes them, (hidden agendas and all).

    I bought one years ago and it was a piece of ***.
    It all started when the keyboard stopped working. I re-installed it from the distro DVD and XP wouldn’t recognise the hot keys anymore.
    Then after 6 months or so, the DVD stopped working for once and for all.

    Then I knew it: If you’re gonna buy a Laptop, buy it from those that have experience. Leave Sony to audio and TV equipment.
    Besides, when it comes to computers, what MATTERS the most is the inside.

    I had a Vaio a few years back and I wasn’t very impressed. However my company has just got me a Vaio UX Micro PC and it’s awesome.

  4. I’ve heard great things about Sony, and I’ve heard bad things. From what I can see, it all depends on which machine you get and what you get in it, and what you do with it.

    I’ve owned 3 in the past, all but 1 was great. That one, I constantly had to restore – a total of 9 times in one year. But, that was back when Windows 2000 was the newest thing :P .

    As for price, I don’t believe Sony is good for it. For quality vs. Price: Sony would be great for it. They usually have a long warranty, and most seem to be pretty rugged/durable.

    Hope this helps.

    IMHO, Sony Vaio is a the Mac’s of the PC world. They are a bit over priced, built well, and are not user maintenance friendly when replacing hardware. Most clients I have talked to that own Sony systems are very happy with them, however I would own one for just the reason I said above.
